Trivers Completes Move to New Downtown West Office

Created on

Trivers has moved from its previous home on the 18th floor of the Broadway Tower to a new office on the ground floor of The Victor in Downtown West.

“This is not just an opportunity for our space to better support our people and our work; it’s a testament to our prolonged commitment to Downtown St. Louis and the rising City Commons neighborhood,” said Joel Fuoss, AIA, IIDA, LEED AP, principal at Trivers. “We are ready to begin this new chapter of our firm’s journey at The Victor.”

Trivers has been based in downtown St. Louis since 1995 and completed more than 30 major projects there, including the Museum at the Gateway Arch, Old Courthouse, Old Post Office, The Westin St. Louis, The Laurel Apartments and Embassy Suites, and many more.

“Metro-wide inclusive growth in our region requires both business attraction and retaining community invested companies that have called St. Louis home for decades,” said Kurt Weigle, chief downtown officer for Greater St. Louis Inc. “For nearly 50 years, Trivers has been headquartered in the city of St. Louis and played an integral role in its transformative projects. We welcome Trivers’ own investment that adds to the continued momentum downtown and growth around CityPark.”

Moving to The Victor allowed Trivers to reimagine its office for a post-COVID workplace and showcase its adaptive reuse work that is at the core of the firm’s DNA. With the goal of promoting flexibility, the nearly 8,000-square-foot office provides an open, flexible floor plan for collaboration, adaptable workstations with standing desks, informal breakout spaces, dedicated wellness and mothers’ rooms, large storefront windows that welcome natural light and enliven street life, and built-in expansion capabilities. Many of these qualities aid in the pending Fitwel certification of the space. Trivers’ employees also have access to The Victor’s rooftop terrace and pool, private courtyard, pickleball court, lounges, golf simulator, dog park, and a fitness center with dedicated space for firm sponsored yoga.

“The opportunity for Trivers to work in an office they designed within a building they played a leading role in restoring is very exciting,” said Drew Siebert, vice president for Paric Corp., which served as general contractor for The Victor project and Trivers’ new office. “Their presence will boost foot traffic in the area, further contributing to the reawakening of the Downtown West neighborhood.”

Trivers was the architect for Development Services Group (DSG), which completed the $130 million transformation of the historic Butler Brothers Building into The Victor. Opened to residents in June 2023, the mixed-use multifamily community next to St. Louis CITY SC’s CityPark has 384 apartment units, retail and co-working spaces, and amenities.

“Trivers is an exceptional architecture firm renowned for its ability to seamlessly blend architecture and cultural elements into transformative design solutions,” said Ethan Knight, vice president of development for DSG. “Their innovative approach not only prioritizes sustainability and technology but also celebrates art and culture, resulting in projects that resonate with communities and inspire admiration.”
